About PPLA

PPLA (Polylactic Acid +) is a variation on PLA and is fast becoming more popular than PLA.? It has an additive increase the smoothness of the surface finish and is less hygroscopic (absorbs less moisture)

It comes in many colours, blends and is usually very easy to print with and is often though to be similar to ABS in its properties.

 

Best settings for successful printing:

Printing / Extrusion temperature200 to 230 degrees
Bed Temperature50 to 80 degrees
Printing Speed20-80mm/s

 

PPLA is biodegradable material made using cornstarch or sugarcane.? It is renewable and is much safer than something like ABS for example.

PPLA can be printed on a medium heated bed.

Like any 3D printing a well ventilated space is preferred and good storage is the key to a good shelf life of your filament.? All our filament is shipped in a vac sealed bag containing a small desiccant satchel.? When opening your bag a clean cut along the top edge will allow you reuse that bag again if you do not finish the entire reel in 1 go.

One of the best things about PPLA, like PLA is the ease of post processing.? Sanding and painting is made simple making it easy to get a very finished and polished look even from the roughest of prints.

Aurarum PPLA is printer agnostic and as such is suitable for all brands including Flashforge, RepRap, Creality, Artillery, MakerBot, Ultimaker, Makergear, Up! … and many others.
